Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Smock, PA
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Smock. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're new to the market and looking for tires that help you work smarter, not harder. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, and it didn't take long for the Firestone name to become a leader in the ag tier market. Firestone was a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. His goal was to get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked ride comfort and traction. In other words, "Put the Farm on Rubber." Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Smock: For the Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This unique farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during all phases of farming, from tillage to harvest. They help raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. With Firestone flotation tires in Smock, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.

To protect your crop through the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Smock
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Smock. But you're probably wondering: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system comes with pros and cons. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Pennsylvania farm. You may find it helpful to use a combination of tires and tire tracks.
Firestone Ag research has shown that in terms of fuel economy, a track system will consume more fuel since it takes more horsepower to rotate the track. The correct tire inflation can make all the difference, though. With the right tire pressure, a tracked tractor and a comparable wheeled tractor will employ about the same amount of fuel. For traction, our research has found that track systems perform better than wheeled systems at 0 - 3% slip. Increase slip to 5 - 9% and wheeled systems prove more efficient. All in all, many things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Smock farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
